Over grown bushes and brambles obstructing public footpath.

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 13:27, Thu 20 June 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 3 minutes later

The bushes and brambles have been over grown for several months. The entire stretch of Novers Hill is over grown. This is leaving the general public with no option other than to walk in the road way. I have a 6mth old baby and would like to be able to safely walk up and down with the pram with out being in danger of being knocked over. This is the most direct root to visit family in Bedminster.

  • The walkable area of pavement towards the top of Novers Hill (near where it meets Novers Lane) has been getting continually smaller of recent months and now there is NO pavement to walk on. Meaning pedestrians must walk in the road. This is unacceptable as many people, including myself, have young children and frequently walk this road. The lower part of Novers Hill is getting worse as well and I can only imagine the pavement will be covered in overgrown brambles and bushes soon enough there too.

  • This is still ongoing and the pavement is completely unusable. This road is already the longest road in Bristol without a pavement and this situation is beyond crazy
